History of Perdomo Cigars
Perdomo cigars are made by Tabacalera Perdomo. As an independent company Tabacalera Perdomo began in 1992 in Miami, Florida, but its history goes back much further. Silvio Perdomo grew up in Cuba and began an apprenticeship in 1930 that began his cigar-making career. Silvio and his son Nicholas were top executives of the largest cigar company in Cuba at the time of the 1959 revolution. Both Silvio and Nicholas, along with his son Nicholas Junior, immigrated to the United States.
While working as an air traffic controller, Nicholas Perdomo Junior began his cigar-making business in his home garage. The company grew slowly and by the cigar boom of the mid-1990s, Tabacalera Perdomo was producing a million cigars annually at a facility in Nicaragua. The family still runs this business and the next generation, Nicholas Perdomo III, is intended to take over eventually.
Varieties of Perdomo Cigars Available
Perdomo did several things that made his brand stand out from the beginning. First, while other manufacturers were simplifying the process and making milder cigars, he used wrappers grown in Ecuador and filler tobacco from several places in Central America to make a full-bodied and spicy cigar. Much of the tobacco includes Cuban seed stock.
